Powdermill Avian Research Center News

 Bander Training Workshop Information 

At Powdermill,  we offer workshops for individuals wanting to be trained in bird banding or to just brush up on skills they already possess. Each year, we offer workshops that focus on extraction and banding and a separate workshop that focuses more on ageing using molt limits.

For the Spring of 2018, we have scheduled our Ageing using Molt Limits Workshop for May 16-20.

If you are interested in attending a workshop, please read through the information on our workshop page, then fill out the workshop Google Form. Submission of the google form does not guarantee a place in the workshop.  Space is limited, therefore priority will be given to those with opportunities to continue to utilize the skills we teach through work or volunteering. 

BirdSafe Pittsburgh

Information about our citizen science project, BirdSafe Pittsburgh, can be found at the Birdsafe website. With the help of the public we are recording instances of bird injuries or fatalities from building collisions in the city. Our volunteers help rescue injured birds and collect data which will allow us to reduce bird-building collisions in the future. 

This Fall, volunteers spent many hours looking for birds that collided with windows in the Golden Triangle area of downtown Pittsburgh. If you are interested in walking a route or surveying your home, please contact us at You can also find out more information about BirdSafe Pittsburgh on Facebook
